The Plainfield, CT Area
Plainfield is a town in Windham County, Connecticut, United States. The town comprises four villages: Plainfield, Moosup, Wauregan, and Central Village. Each village has their own respective United States Post Office and fire department. And Providence, RI, 30 miles to the East, is the closest major city.
Plainfield was incorporated in 1699 as the town of Quinebaug and renamed the following year to its current name. In the 19th and early 20th centuries Plainfield proved to be an industrial heavyweight due largely to the ability of the Moosup and Quinebaug Rivers to provide power to the different mills throughout town. For a small town, Plainfield had incredible commerce because of the intersection of four railways from Hartford, New York, Boston, and Providence.
